Duck Connect has Transitioned to Handshake

The University of Oregon Career Center is excited to announce our transition to Handshake, a modern career services platform designed to connect students and employers to each other, events, and opportunities. Read on for helpful resources for successfully using Handshake.

Transition Steps and Training Resources

For Off-Campus Employers

Handshake is your one-stop tool for posting jobs, tracking applicants, scheduling on-campus interviews, and registering for career fairs and events.


For UO Students and Alumni

Handshake is similar to Duck Connect, but more user-friendly. It offers a mobile version, and recommends jobs and events to you based on your interests, majors, and skills. You’ll also be able to set employer alerts and job notifications, plus schedule appointments with the Career Center—all within your account.


For the UO Community

Use Handshake just as you did Duck Connect to advertise your on-campus job opportunities to UO students. If you already have an account in Duck Connect, you will receive your invitation to Handshake on August 20, 2018, otherwise you can sign up for an account. You can get Handshake support on their website, or by attending one of our information sessions (schedule to be announced).
